From the opening letter of Richard G. Lugar and Joseph R. Biden, Jr., "On April 26, the Committee on Foreign Relations held a hearing titled 'U.S.-Indian Nuclear Energy Cooperation: Strategic and Nonproliferation Implications.'Given the ongoing committee consideration of this U.S.-Indian Civilian Nuclear Agreement, we wish to make the testimony of all our witnesses available to the entire Senate. Additionally, the answers to initial questions for the record that were posed some months ago are included. […].We believe that their testimony can be helpful in preparing members for subsequent Senate consideration of the U.S.-Indian Civilian Nuclear Agreement." From the opening statement of Richard G. Lugar, "Energy cooperation between the United States and India is particularly important. India's energy needs are expected to double by 2025. The United States has an interest in expanding energy cooperation with India to develop new technologies, cushion supply disruptions, cut green house gas emissions, and prepare for declining global fossil fuel reserves. The United States' own energy problems will be exacerbated if we do not forge energy partnerships with India, China, and other nations experiencing rapid economic growth. That is why I have introduced S. 2435, the Energy Diplomacy and Security Act, which would encourage international energy dialogues and advance a broad range of energy diplomacy goals." Statements, letters, and materials submitted for the record include those of the following: William J. Perry, Robert Gallucci, Ashley Tellis, Ronald Lehman, Robert Einhorn, Gary Milhollin, Stephen Cohen.
